This ACl injury isn't the career threaten injury it once was.
Disagree when it's just money and not money and picks there will be a lot more teams bidding on him in free agency ,than teams that want to trade for him.
With the tax rate in New York /New Jersey you think Revis wants to give up more of his dollars than he has to. Maybe he wants to play for hometown Steelers. who knows but I think he likes money more than playing in any state. So I don't know if anyone can say he wants to play in New York.
If a team offers him $15-16 million per year before the season begins and before he proves that he is healthy he will take that deal in a minute. I am sure that if a team hits the number that he is looking for he will sign with them as quick as he can. I'm sure he is confident that he will return to how he was pre-injury but you can never be certain so if you're in his shoes you have to take the guaranteed money while it's available. Who is to say he doesn't blow out the same knee week 1? Now his knee is a huge question mark and he may only get half the contract he could have gotten if he signed this off-season. If someone hits that number, he will take it no matter what team it is. It's all about financial security with him, it makes perfect business sense.
